Entitlement to Per Diem While on Annual Active Duty for Training
B-182205: Aug 6, 1975
- Full Report:
An advance decision was requested with regard to the entitlement of a member of a reserve component ordered to annual active duty for training to a per diem allowance while occupying quarters at a Navy Lodge. The statute which provided that members of Reserve components ordered to annual active duty for training were not entitled to per diem if government quarters and mess were available did not preclude payment of per diem where members of the reserves incurred lodging expenses at nonappropriated fund activities which were defined as government quarters for the purposes of the statute without consideration that such expenses would be incurred.
